UW-Madison Visitor Guide




Boundary value problems in kinetic equations remain theoretically challenging yet important for applications. Boundary layer analysis also plays critical roles  in the study of multiscale kinetic and hydrodynamic coupling problems.


This workshop will bring together researchers with diverse expertise on mathematical and numerical methods in kinetic equations. Our goal is to stimulate interdisciplinary discussions between engineers, physicists and mathematicians, with a particular focus on theoretical and computational challenges emerging from boundary value problems and multi-scale coupling for kinetic equations.



Invited participants can RSVP and provide the additional requested information about their stay, including the title and abstract of proposed talks, here.

Applications for participation can be made through the Online Application. Applicants who are also interested in making a poster presentation can specify their preference to do so in the “comments section” of their application. Due to space limitations, these requests are subject to approval by the organizers.
